A certain Christian traveler was packing his suitcase when about to proceed on a journey, when he remarked to a friend:
"There is still a little corner left open in which I desire to pack a guidebook, a lamp, a mirror, a telescope, a book of poems, a number of biographies, a bundle of old letters, a hymnbook, a sharp sword, a small library, containing 30 volumes & all these articles must occupy a space of about 9 inches x 6 inches x 2 inches.”
"How are you going to manage that?" queried his friend & the reply was: "Very easily, for the Bible contains all these things."
The most wonderful, the most marvelous book in all the literature of the world is the Bible, because it is God's own Book!

“The Word of God well understood and obeyed is the shortest route to perfection. And we must not select a few favorite passages to the exclusion of others. Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole follower of Christ.” - A.W. Tozer.
